blessed

I am truly blessed. I have a very understanding, caring, loving, providing, laid back husband who has never, in the 13 years we've been together, told me I needed to do things differently. When the house is a war zone and he's wading through clothes, toys, kids, a dog, and shoes he doesn't ask ,"what have you been doing today?" And believe me...that happens a lot around here. I am NOT a neat freak.

He has listened to me vent and brake down in tears for the last 2 weeks. He has comforted me and told me that even if some changes come about in our finances he is behind me on the decision I make. He will never tell me to get a job when we are in a rut.

When I feel like the worst mother in the world, he tells me otherwise. He tells me that he thinks I am a wonderful mom who loves her kids. He understands how hard it is to be a mom.... and work outside the home. So he gives me a little slack...sometimes too much. God has convicted me lately of what my job is and how I have slacked off in too many areas of my life as wife and mom. Todd hasn't complained once.

He loves us unconditionally, pulls a 60 hour week and still finds time to love on us, helps me clean and/or cook on the weekends. He actually is a better cook than I am. That is a little hard to admit but true. He has really grown into his role has husband and father. He has taken his place as the head of our household after I dethroned myself......yes, God not so nicely brought it to my attention that I wasn't in the right place.

God has truly blessed me with my soul mate.Sometimes I forget that and can focus so much on all of the negative things that happens between us. That I completely lose track of all of the wonderful things that Todd does for me and the kids.

My Husband is the love of my life. Through all the struggles of marriage , parenting, and life in general he is my strength, comfort, and voice of reason. He is soooo much more............................

Happy Anniversary, Todd!

You brought me to tears! What a blessing you are to our son, and to us. You have rightly been named the Gift of Loy, because that is what you are to us and to our son and your family. I stand amazed at the awesomeness of the God who had in His infinite plan that you and Todd were made for each other.

We love you beyond words.
Your mother-in-law, Susan
